The Time to AdvertUe.
There is no more profitable season
for newspaper advertising than dur
ing a general business depression,
when a panicky feeling exists and
the great mass of people feel im
pelled to economize in every possi
ble way. When such conditions ex
ist the bargain announcements of
the merchant are unusually attrac
tive, and many a man or woman who
ordinarily trades with some personal
friend or at store a little more con
venient than others, will walk sev
eral blocks to save a dime or niekle.
The merchant, too, owing to a dull
trade, makes additional efforts to
tide over the stringency, and the bar
gains he offers the public are real
and desirable. He must have monev
to meet his expenses, and lirst cost
of wares is not the most important
During the dull seasons the gen
eral public has more time to read the
newspapers, and so the publisher can
oiler the advertiser an increased circu
lation. and conscqucntl v more for his
money, just as the advertiser offers
the public increased values in ex
change for the much needed cash, so
that there is a mutual advantage to
the people, to the merchant, anil the

THE FINNY TRIBE.
Disregard of the Law in the Vay Some are
The Mohne Dispatch holds that
there is a laxness in obeying the fish
laws. It says that the law pro
hibits seining in any waters in the
state at any time except that in the
navigable rivers, bays and lakes; a
seine with meshes not less than two
inches square may be used from July
till April. It is as unlawful to Inn
er sell fish caught in violation of the
law as it is to catch them.
It is the business of the lish ward
en to enforce this law, and he is giv
en power to arrest without warrant
any person who violates it, and if
the offense is proved the penalty is
not less than $10 or more than $200
and cost of suit.
Now if those who want to fish with
the rod and line will assist the war
den, illegal fishing can soon be
stopped and the river tilled with good

States have stocked the waters of the
state, and iif the lish hawks can be
prevented from using seines there
will lie an abundance tor every ang
ler. All the lish warden aks is that
anglers report any violation of the
law to him and he will see that it is
prosecuted. If such reports arc
made to him by all who see the vio
lations it will not be long till the
illegal work is stopped.
Seining; at Night.
The most of the seining is done at
night, when it is difficult to catch the
offenders, but it can be done. It
might bo well to organize an associ
ation here, as is done in some places
to protect the lish from the seiners.
Such a society could by a few years'
work make the river here swarm
with lish that would delight the
heart of a sportsman. The lish ward
en for this section is Henry Furst.
and he has jurisdiction anywhere in

know of any violation of the law,
